Congratulations - F1 In Schools
Congratulations to the M'KIS team (Team Arrow) on their participation at the F1 in Schools Malaysia competition last Saturday, May 19th, held at Garden International School Malaysia. There were 24 teams competing from 10 different international schools.
“F1 in Schools” is an international STEM competition, in which groups of students have to design and manufacture a miniature car, powered by CO2 cartridges. They are timed from the moment they are launched to when they pass the finish line by a computer.
Their best race time was 1.085 seconds and they were ranked 5th. Not too bad considering this was their first time in the competition. Their car was aerodynamic and well designed, all of which helped attain a quick time. The team has vowed to improve their reaction time (0.181seconds), and hope to beat their own record next year.
In addition to the race itself, teams had to produce a printed Portfolio explaining how the car was designed and tested, prepare a verbal presentation explaining the entire design process, as well as produce a pit display showcasing their works and advertising the team.
This was a long journey for Team Arrow. But it was worth it.
